This week’s workouts were super diverse and a nice mix of yoga, cardio and strength.
Hot Yoga + CrossFit Benchmark WOD Elizabeth
I am so out of the CrossFit loop. This was my first CrossFit workout in weeks. Cleans are my favorite movement and after coaching two classes through it, I couldn’t resist knocking it out myself. I did it solo and finished in 12:02. I challenged myself on the cleans and went with 85 pounds. I can’t do unassisted ring dips quite yet (I am soooo close) so I used a thin black band.
I was SOOOOO sore for three days after this workout. No CrossFit for three weeks + heavy barbell workout = pain. Know what was more sore than anything on my body? My biceps! Who would have ever thought!?
On Tuesday I sweated my way through my friend Lauren’s spin class. She kills us every time. I spent half of the class with my eyes closed and chanting a mantra to myself to just keep moving my legs. At least I had my cute new leggings on while I was dying! 🙂
2 mile run + hot vinyasa
I coached two CrossFit classes and then ran two quick miles on the treadmill before a hot vinyasa yoga class.
Run + Strength
I ran another easy two miler on the treadmill while watching House Hunters International and dreaming about moving abroad. I wanted to do a strength workout but was totally uninspired as to what that would be. I swear, even though I’m a trainer sometimes I feel like I need a trainer! Luckily, one of our trainers had this workout written out on a board so I decided to give it a try.
75# for deadlifts
25# dumbbells for chest press
35# kettlebell goblet squat
#25 dumbbells for push press
bodyweight for the rest
Repeated two times through. Really good full body workout. I also added in 50 GHD sit ups. 30 after the first round and 20 after the second.
3 mile run
Easy three miler with the pup on Friday night. I wore my reflective vest because it was dark and safety ALWAYS comes first. I used to have a blinky light for Sullie’s collar too. Speaking of Sullie…that little rock star is seven and a half and still rocking the runs with me. Love her!
